performance: losing 7.0 lb a week
*Please note, my username's nothing to do with Star Trek. I just do a lot of walking and my first name means "star".* I'm a 48-year old woman, married, and teach college English. I'm also a US-Brit living in the UK for now, which is why I like using the US version of FS.
Until my mid-30s, I was pretty slim but, over about 12 years, I got so big that I couldn’t even do up the seatbelt on an aeroplane. In April 2013, I made a commitment to start being my body’s best friend, rather than its worst enemy, and set a weight loss goal of 122 lbs. I’ve lost the majority of that now and am out of the obese category.
My approach is to genuinely ENJOY the process of getting healthy and slim, and make it sustainable for the rest of my life. No magic shakes, gimmicks or pills -- just a good ol' fashioned healthy diet and plenty of exercise. I love to hear from other members, whether it's with comments, commiserations or celebrations, so please feel free to get in touch.
